Default My next brew

So far this year I have brewed an Imperial Stout, Barley wine, Honey pale, Dry stout, Scottish ale, and american brown. So here I am with empty primary's trying to figure out what to brew next. Maybe something I have never brewed like a dark wheat around 1.050 or so, something I could enoy this summer but something really good and smooth with a smack pack of 1056 Not to hoppy but something thirst quenching that I could brew at 68F. So I thought I would see if I could get any ideas. Any ideas for my next brew would be appreciated.
